    Mind Music Machine Lab Podcast in Distillations Magazine

    tri-M-podcastResearchers involved with Michigan Tech’s Mind MusicMachine Lab were interviewed by reporter Allison Mills for a podcast in Distillations Magazine. The magazine is an online publication of the Chemical Heritage Foundation, which is a library, museum, and center for scholars.

    The interview occupies about the first 12 minutes of Episode 198: Old Brains, New Brains: The Human Mind, Past and Present.

    The interviewees for that segment include:

    Humane Interface Design Interviewed at 2015 Design Expo

    Human Interface Design at Design Expo 2015

    The Enterprise team Human Interface Design (HIDE) presented at the 2015 Design Expo held at the Memorial Union Ballroom on April 16.

    Team Leaders
    Stephen Radachy, Computer Science and Seyedeh Maryam “Shabnam” Fakhrhosseini
    Robert Pastel, Computer Science
    Project Overview
    Our team provides students with an opportunity to design, develop, and evaluate interfaces to make daily work more efficient and easier to manage. As a whole, HIDE works together to design and test different applications for our industry partners that can be used on Android, iPhone, and other devices. We accomplish these projects by combining knowledge from multiple disciplines (e.g., computer science, psychology, and human factors). Students can get involved in various stages of the design process, from developing an app by programming to evaluation by designing usability tests and analyzing data.

    Workshop: Developing Partnership and Advancing Driving Research

    The Michigan Tech Transportation Institute (MTTI) will host the first workshop on “Developing Partnership and Advancing Driving Research.” We would like to invite researchers and practitioners interested in in-vehicle user interfaces and applications. This workshop aims to identify plausible research projects and collaborators for each identified project, introduce possible funding agencies and proposal submission logistics, and plan and schedule activities that will culminate in competitive proposal submission.

    Guest Speakers

    • Andrew Kun (University of New Hampshire)
    • Bruce Walker (Georgia Tech)
    • Andreas Riener (Johannes Kepler University Linz)
    • Collin Castle (Michigan Department of Transportation)

    There is no registration fee, but an RSVP is preferred. Please RSVP to Steven Landry, assistant organizer,, by Thursday, April 30.

    Catered lunch and wine and cheese reception will be provided. The day before and after, the Mind Music Machine Lab will also have a demo session on research facilities, including multiple driving simulators, robots and virtual environment.

    Participants, who want to present their research interests and skill sets can send a single power point slide to Steven Landry, assistant organizer,, by Thursday, May 14.

    Research presentation is not mandatory. You can attend without any presentation.

    This workshop is hosted by Michigan Tech Transportation Institute, Department of Cognitive and Learning Sciences and Department of Computer Science.
